COMMENTS Total time [1:12:35 +] Obviously the 1st set list is incomplete;
probably Cryptical Envelopment > drums > preceded The Other One but possibly
something else. Likely more tunes are missing before that, too -- if the
tape catalogued under SET 1 represents the second side of a cassette master,
then there's 45 minutes missing previous to where the tape cuts in.
According to the review of the show by Richard Saltus in the Arizona Daily
Star for 4/12/69, they also performed versions of Morning Dew and Sittin On
Top Of The World. Presumably these tunes belong before That's It.
There is a Main Ten jam in Dark Star, starting at 9:53 and running till
11:05, a total of 1:12; this is the first known occurence of this kernel and
prototype of Playin In The Band. There is a cut in St. Stephen at 3:26;
probably a couple minutes are lost here.
There is also a cut in The Eleven at 3:54, with a passage of jamming of
uncertain length lost (perhaps as little as 20 seconds but also possibly as
long as several minutes). The Eleven analyzes St. Stephen > 1st vocals
1:05 > transition jam 1:21 > Eleven jam 1:#40 > Eleven vocals 0:40 > Eleven
jam 1:04 > transition 0:06 > Lovelight.

another great show
all you whiners about sound quality and being too quiet, you just need to get some simple editing software. I use Peak on my imac to record the stream, then break it into tracks and transfer it to itunes. In this case I selectively increased the volume on Dark Star and St. Stephen (both channels) and then further increased the volume on the right channel to equal the left, and now it all plays at the same volume. I didn't do anything about tape hiss because I am used to it having first recorded a Dead show off the radio in April 1969 on a reel-to-reel deck with no Dolby NR, and then trading for some multi-generation tapes in the late sixties/early seventies. To my old ears this stuff is more than fine. If you want a CD copy of my edited show just email me at email@example.com and I can send you one, or maybe attach it to an email back to you.

First half sound is good,
second half (the best half in terms of performance, probably) sound is bad.

The GRATEFUL DEAD "live On Stage" April 11, 1969 at the University Auditorium, U. of Arizona, Tucson, AZ, U.S.A.
Forty years ago today the GRATEFUL DEAD performed live before an audience in Tucson, and this is what some of it sounded like
Dark Star & St. Stephen have low recording levels, bummer.
The recording level returns to normal at "The Eleven."
Classic performances, a nice addition to your
1969 GRATEFUL DEAD Collection.
Eat, Drink, Be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.
